Joaquin Phoenix!

Warner Bros. is rumored to be releasing a new banner called DC Dark (so you imagine that this film will not be all sunshine and lollipops with rainbows everywhere)

Apparently Leonardo DiCaprio was earmarked for the role but now it's all about Joaquin!

The untitled Joker origin story will be directed by Todd Phillips and co-written by Scott Silver, and will start production this September.

Sadly we will have to wait until 2019 to see how Joaquin goes in the role.

Until then, let's marvel at how amazing he was playing Commodus in Gladiator.
